Kirsten Dunst can breathe easier now that a Superior Court judge has barred a French man from contacting her until January 2015.

Dunst, who has been flirting with the award-season circuit thanks to her starring performance in Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia," was not present in court when Judge Carol Boas Goodson issued the order against 51-year-old Jean Christophe Prudhon of Dijon, France.

According to the Associated Press, Prudhon sent Dunst more than 50 unanswered love letters and even traveled to the U.S. and confronted Dunst's mother outside her Toluca Lake home. Did we mention he said in court documents that he sold his house in France so he could visit? Yeah, he did.

Now Prudhon must stay at least 100 yards away from Dunst and her mother.

It's been an active week in the suspected-stalker community. On Friday, a Superior Court judge issused a similar restraining order against Thomas Brodnicki, who had been allegedly been bothering Selena Gomez and her family.
